Renewed Prayer Request
November 27, 2010
Last night Mark’s fever returned. The doctors were alarmed since it was a fever from an unknown source that destroyed his mitral valve in the first place. We are all hoping that it is the result of the surgical trauma to his body and not infection. It would be almost normal at this point to have some fever. They don’t want to give him antibiotics because they would mask an infection and prevent us from being able to identify it.
Mark is happy to have had almost all if the IVs and tubes removed except for a chest port. They can draw blood and give him further medication through this port.
Please pray that the fever goes away and stays away. That the infection will be gone and not attack any other organ. We covet your prayers! Thank you. ~ Kristina
